This article was sent as a Health Alert to established patients who are familiar with our Center and our services. If you are a prospective or new patient, information included here may not be pertinent to your health at this time. We invite you to learn more about our comprehensive treatment approach.

Many of us have catastrophic health insurance, but for a whole lot less money you can reduce your health risks.

I feel like a doting mother, but if I don’t remind you, who will? So I’m asking, did you take 2000 to 4000 IU of Vitamin D today and every day? Supplementing with Vitamin D and 10 to 15 minutes of sun at noon may be the greatest health story of the century. What other single therapy do you know of that can reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disease by 80 percent, as well as prevent depression and heart disease? Now, in addition to all the other benefits of Vitamin D, it has been shown that optimal levels of this vitamin also act as an antibiotic. One of the best sources of information on Vitamin D is The more you learn, the more you will be convinced why you and your family should be taking this sunshine vitamin as an important part of your health program.

For your convenience, COEM now carries Vitamin D in a dropper bottle, providing 2000 IU of Vitamin D in just one drop! Liquid Vitamin D is ideal for children or anyone who doesn’t wish to swallow capsules. Drop an e-mail to or fax a request to (843) 572-1795 and we will get this extremely convenient and cost-effective form of Vitamin D mailed to you.

In my last E-mail Alert, I also wrote about two other natural “health insurance policies”, Vitamin K2 (MK7 or menaquinone-7) and Resveratrol (derived from grape skin). I am repeating this info as I feel the same way about these two nutrients as I do about Vitamin D. Vitamin K2 is one of the most powerful ways to address and prevent arterial plaque, which is the most common culprit in creating heart disease and stroke. Resveratrol provides such potent anti-oxidants that you can get significant protection against many common health problems just through this one supplement alone. We offer both of these to our patients at COEM.

In 2009, I’d like to address your questions and concerns, so feel free to send these questions to and I’ll answer as many of them as possible in future Health Alerts. Every two weeks, I will alert you to other important health information.

All of us at COEM look forward to helping you enjoy a happy and healthy new year.
